    I don't see anything in there except telling people to stop flaming.

    I am sure if they did the staff will explain...I would think that if they in fact did, that they have a reason for it.

    Yep I'm sure they will, it's called censorship at it's finest.

    Forkup, please don't spread misinformation. I don't consider deleting troll posts censorship, I call it keeping the peace.

    There are people on the internet who take pride and gain joy from ruining other people's experience. Our goal is to keep this place fun and make sure that our members can enjoy the site and learn here.

    If we didn't "censor" anyone this place would be a free for all and we would find that soon our entire userbase left for places where they can actually learn and enjoy.

    I don't really follow much of the root news, posts, devs, etc. But I, for one, would really respect the mods if this is the case and on the up and up. It doesn't matter how well known or important someone is, if you break the rules you deserve to be punished. It would be significantly worse for the boards to let one person slide on a violation because of their importance or impact, while others do not get the same generosity.
